LOFT GARAGE/accessory DWELLING
A Loft Garage or Accessory Dwelling is a perfect way to create more Space for Life to cater for extended family living for teenagers, guest accommodation or for multi-generational living.
These dwellings can have more than 1 bedroom, even have 2 bathrooms, however they cannot have a kitchen or food prep area, which makes them different to Minor Dwellings and Second Dwellings. Sometimes our clients create these Loft Garages and/or Accessory Dwellings with the idea that they can add a kitchen at a later time.
If you are looking to provide for extended family living and recreation space for teenagers, guest accommodation or granny flat, a Loft Garage/Accessory Dwelling could be the perfect solution. As this space is built over a garage it makes for efficient use of space, where the upstairs can be for living and the downstairs can be converted into a work from home space.
Other uses for Loft Garages or Accessory buildings are for man/she-sheds, private studios, and other similar buildings. It is normally used by the owners or occupants of the house or main building or family members due to the lack of cooking facilities it is not always a viable option as a rental income, unless short term in the case of Airbnb.
